Release Date: August 16, 2002
If you want to enjoy this movie, you'd better like surfing. A lot.
I'll give Universal and Imagine Entertainment credit; the trailer makes no bones about the fact that this is a movie about surfing and surfers. Oh, sure; there are some soap-opera elements added: surfers get injured and have to make comebacks; surfers fall in and out of love; surfers become territorial, blah, blah, bliddy-blah. But mostly, the movie is about surfing. And surfers. Who apparently, judging from the trailer, are all young and good-looking and mostly blondes.
So if you're into surfing and/or watching vacuous, pretty young people surf, then this is likely going to be your favorite movie of the summer. Personally, I'd rather have a sharp stick in the eye, but that's just me.
